Neath Food and Drink Festival
Neath Food and Drink
Festival was born in 2009 and has since established itself as one
of the premiere events in the town's calendar. Over the past few
years, the festival has highlighted the variety of high
quality Welsh produce that is available locally and focused on the
range of products available from award winning suppliers in the
Market and surrounding area.
As well as the exhibiting
stall holders, it is an excellent opportunity for the established
town centre shops, restaurants and café’s to showcase their
products to a wider audience.
its seventh year in 2015 the festival
hosted around 80 exhibitors and for the first time
over a three day period. The festival included award winning
suppliers from Neath's famous Indoor Victorian Market. The festival was a
true celebration of local produce and Neath's historic market
We also organised a Street Food
Zone in Angel Square, a Champagne Tent in the grounds of St
Thomas' Church and a Real Ale Hall in the Old Town
Hall! Plus there were guided walks, talks, live music and
much more in multiple venues throughout the town.
It certainly was an action packed three days!
When you speak to the producers,
the first thing that comes across is their passion and knowledge.
Whether it is goats milk ice cream, samosa's or sea food, long horn
beef or apple juice, everything has been made by people who care
passionately about the quality and process of the products they
make. By supporting these producers not only are you getting the
freshest tasty offerings, you are also helping to support
businesses in your local community.
The 2016 Neath Food and
Drink Festival event has been confirmed to take place on Friday
30th September, Saturday 1st October and Sunday 2nd October.
